Herzog Technologies, Watco team up on PTC efforts


Herzog Technologies Inc. has entered into a strategic partnership with Watco Cos. LLC to provide positive train control (PTC) program management and back-office hosting services.

The arrangement means Herzog will lead all facets of Watco's PTC efforts, including project management, coordination with the Federal Railroad Administration and interoperable railroad partners, as well as training and compliance, according to an email statement from Herzog.

Also, Herzog PTC Hosting will allow for Watco locomotives to become connected to the Interoperable Train Control network, which will allow for full operation in PTC required territories, the statement said.
